Thanks !
50+ tanks and plans man ! I got a few high quality fish here...
Planning is key.... I turn 53 this month so I would hate to say I am surprised by repetitive behavior..
Should only be a short 3 months and then back at it. By then I will look forward to it again , and knowing my company might even go back to the same job I was at last week !
It is 78 degrees with a RH of 47% in the fish room with tunes rocking ..
NICE AND TROPICAL !

A layoff just for the winter sounds like it might be just perfect for you! And the fish

Looking good. How are those picta holding up?

EDIT:

Just caught up, glad to see that you are getting fry. Sad to hear about the male Pelvicachromis, but you have plenty of fry growing out.

Get those black rams going asap.... I want some for sure! Lol.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Years Shane !
Looks like there may be a bunch of fry showing up from the picta..
Without the male I may let the female raise this group for a week or so.Then I will move her to the 29 with the hatchet fish and move her oldest into the 20...
I was surprised to hear from one of my buddies that the blacks were available..
Still waiting to hear how much....

I imagine it will not be cheap...

I wonder how strong of a line they will be.

Excited for you!

Got 3 new tanks for a steal yesterday..They are new and 1/3 the lowest price I could find on net..

They are 1.9 g tanks ! And they fit perfect across the top of a 40b with a little creativity..They are Deep Blue 3B tanks .12x6x6.
I moved the Pelvicachromis fry #2 [ 12/13/17 ] ,The Apisto bitaeniata fry 12/5/17 and the platinum angels from 12/18/17..
Here are the angels

Caught the EBR/GBR fry from last video to give a better chance... Got them in a Dip and Pour in the parents tank.
Have a little room for whoever lays eggs next..
True to my word and digging being inside out the cold I have shaved !
Before[old guy]

After[still old guy but less gray] beside the shirt .. I like gray !

Thanks man ! Having time helps...
The female Pelvicachromis must have eaten the eggs? She has wandered the tank for 2 days ,with no sign of fry in tow or hidden. Spotted her in all three caves over the last 2 days but no fry /wigglers/or eggs in any?
So tonight when I was sure their were no fry in the cave with her I snapped her and cave up and moved her back to her original home the 29..It is different now and she is alone so I expect all may be well.. At least with the male gone I am not stuck with a 'plain Jane ' female fish.. She is beautiful... Glad I took the first two spawns now for sure though...
So I think tomorrow I will move her oldest fry into the 20 she was in. The water matches and I will change 50-75% anyways.. This will help them keep growing quickly and with any luck I will have a breeding pair again soon ..
That will free up a tank for fry from 12/2 to come out of their dip and pour...
Got another set of angel eggs but the jury is still out? 40% of the eggs seem to turn white in 24 hours after I took them indicating to me not fertilized...
This pair is very random and I am glad I have the juvis from them I do. I left these eggs with them for aday after I first saw them so they should have had time to be fertilized...
Apisto bitaeniata spawned again ,but very low number of eggs . I count 19 wigglers.. Only 3 of the previous batch survived .. They are in the 1.9g with their oldest brothers and sister...They are meeker feeding then the Pelvicachromis second batch next door that eat like it is a contest !

Moved the first and second spawn from the balloon male ram into a 5g tank today.. Interested to see if any are balloon..
And finally may have a chance to try to promote genetic further then with many rams. One of the original 3 pairs from the EBR/GBR cross lost his mate. I thought for a week about what to do.. Can't sell him as most are monogamous and did not want to just euthanize him so I found a 'maturing' female from a spawn of his brother and sister !!! So if these two breed the outcome should be very colorful ? She is much smaller then him but so far he seems to be liking her nicely.. She will grow fast in a tank with only herself and him compared to the group she had to contend with...
